Moscow getting contradictory signals from U.S. on Putin-Trump meeting

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has said there is no dispute in the intelligence community about Russia's meddling in the election.

One amendment reportedly being considered in the State Duma would allow the state's Prosecutor General's office to block "undesirable organizations" from posting their content on Russia's internet.

The Presidents agreed to maintain open military channels of communication between military professionals to help ensure the safety of both US and Russian forces and de-confliction of partnered forces engaged in the fight against ISIS.

That was President Trump on Saturday, defending Russian President Vladi-mir Putin against the unanimous view of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and USA intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the US elections.

So Washington Post and other media outlets go to James Clapper and John Brennan - who both lied to Congress and who essentially allowed Putin to do whatever he wanted in Ukraine - to say that Trump is being played? Vedomosti later reported that the Dumawas considering a much broader move, covering other Western and worldwide press outlets.

Mantashe disappointed in those pushing rumours of his possible removal
Mantashe said the group is tasked with meeting with all parties and to draw up a report that will inform the party's decision. Violence recently broke out at the Eastern Cape's provincial conference, with some ANC members having to be hospitalized.

The January document noted, "We did not make an assessment of the impact that Russian activities had on the outcome of the 2016 election". Putin replied Russian Federation did not. He's Vladimir Putin, ex-KGB. But I just asked him again, and he said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. They don't (openly) say collusion is real, but it's awkward enough that they claim Moscow engaged in efforts to help the president win.

"The Trump administration's plan of substituting bilateral FTAs for the multilateral TPP is going nowhere fast", said Bonnie Glaser, an Asia scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "As now led by fine people, I believe very much in our intelligence agencies".

He continued, "Of course Trump's own intelligence agencies believe Russian Federation interfered in the election, so Trump was later forced to clarify his comments".

Over on Late Night, Meyers made jokes at the president's expense during his "Closer Look" segment.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!"

NCAA Grants NC State's Braxton Beverly Eligibility
The school hired attorney Scott Tompsett to work on Beverly's behalf and a request to reconsider the decision was filed last week. It's not immediately clear what the new information was that led the NCAA to reverse course on its decision.

We are left, then, with this: Trump says he believes strongly that Putin believes strongly that Russian Federation didn't interfere in the United States elections previous year. "He's the President of the United States". No less an authority than Mike Pompeo, the President Trump-appointed Central Intelligence Agency director, has said there is certainty about Russian meddling.

When Trump's convoy passed spectators on Nguyen Van Line Road in Da Nang, Vietnam, one individual was seen with a sign that read "Welcome the President (angel) of America Donald Trump to Da Nang Vietnam".

The president has always denied Russian Federation influenced his win - as has Vladimir Putin. They were sanctioned at a very high level, and that took place very recently.

A USA intelligence official told VOA there has been no change to the assessment about Russia's efforts to influence last year's election.
